A Snapshot from the Spiritual Growth Survey

Earlier this year with the assistance of the Barna group, Redeemer’s churches conducted a Redeemer-wide census and each church conducted a spiritual health survey. Below are three areas of comparison that provide a snapshot of some areas where we have seen growth.

Please note that 2019 saw a decline in survey participation from previous years, and despite efforts to cast a wider net, this year’s sample includes a higher proportion of those who are more engaged at Redeemer.
